Hi Eric, I am still having problems getting my breathing right, (& I also seem to lose my embouchure at times), guess it's just lack of practice.
When trying to 'link' videos here from Youtube, you have to copy the URL of your video, & paste it into your message on here, it should show up highlighted in blue, like this, www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYtTtnfmsgc

Hi Keith, what is it that you find difficult when playing this tune,maybe I can help you. I would like you to do me a favour. What is the E-Mail address of the Club.I am still getting a box message I-E Invalid e-mail address.I cannot transfer anything over from You Tube.Eric33.
Hi AndyT, a much improved rendition,BUT you didn't keep the tempo,some of it was very good but the rest,not so good,I realise that you are an amateur as I am myself,but what I would suggest is to buy or borrow a Metronome and set the beat and stick to it.Alternately,keep time by tapping you foot,or get someone to tap the the table or whatever with their hand in order to keep that beat.Try also to practice those octave changes.Otherwise a good effort.Eric33.
Very nice Andy, huge improvement from the previous attempt.
You seem to have the overblows (?) nailed. I'm finding them very hard - that single note is preventing me doing another rendition of this tune...
It's not that easy on a chromatic either, so I reckon you're doing OK.
Took a while to find, but I knew I'd seen it somewhere.
Just say it got fat sitting around & needs some exercise!
I need some advice.
I've offered to support the youth development band in the brass band I play in by playing on of of the absent instruments. The trouble is, how am I going to smuggle a Tuba into the house?
That's equivalent to a few hundred harps I'm guessing.
I suppose I could just say I put my trumpet in the wash and it expanded a bit
Try this one. I saw the one you saw and it was seven in a case
the one I'm talking about is about 20.
If the above doesn't take you to it, try:
Sorry for the mix up, I never saw the other one until just now.
This one is listed as Spokane $1.
Oh and I really like your playing by the way. Very groovy.
Ok, for some reason, the rest of the message got ignored - twice.
Here it is, again.
I assume when you say you have the music and words, what you mean is you know it in your head but want to put it down on paper, either for others, or to ensure you get the right version which you like. That's a big task.
You need to first list all the notes you are playing - I.e. Tab it up - then line them up with the words. Then do what tabs miss, such as set out the note lengths, the rests, the beat, the tempo (speed) and so on. All the things captured in normal music scores but lost in tabs.
Like I said, a lot of work. I do it for songs I'm learning - to a certain degree (I use short hand for note lengths at least) but not too often as it is a lot of work.
Way over my head now, lol.
Seriously though, I have words and music for the song "If Judy Wants to Travel" I just don't know how to get the music down on paper. That's what I meant when I said I needed a professional to assist me.
